    Im not a big fan of chrome on newer cars. Im having all the chrome professionally painted and to do that i need to remove it all first. Ive gotten all of it off except for the the reveal molding that runs above both doors and around the quarter window. I got the screws that are under the weather strips on the apertures of the doors, i just cant get it to release from the window portion. Anybody have any idea how to do it? Any website i can refer to?

    Why not do something like Plastidip yourself? It isn't permanent and you can play around with colors. For the trim you're having problems removing, tape around your car and just spray the trim.

    The chrome trim is adhered with "glue" intended to be permanent, as opposed to press fit trim on all other cars. If you manage to remove it, you will need some kind of adhesive tape to reattach, and that might be much more difficult that it sounds.
